About Us

The Long Eaton Tetsudo Club is a non-profit making organisation whose purpose is to teach and spread the art of Tetsudo.

No instructor gains financially from teaching the artform

 

         
WHAT IS TETSUDO?
 
 
TETSUDO training makes the BODY physically strong, agile and healthy and the MIND to become more aware, perceptive and focused..... and when the two are in harmony, then the seemingly impossible becomes possible.

 

 

The skills learnt through the practice of TETSUDO offer profound benefits to EVERYONE regardless of age, gender or fitness level. 

 

 

TETSUDO is a holistic martial art. It is a unique therapeutic experience for both Mind and Body and as such, it is much more than just a means of physical self-defence....

It is the COMPLETE SELF-DEFENCE

 

 

 

Physical, Mental, and Social Benefits

 

For people new to the martial arts, the benefits of martial arts training might not be obvious. Some will think, sure, it's a great workout and good for self-defense, with all that punching and kicking.

 

 

But the benefits of martial arts training, especially for children and teenagers, are much more than simple physical improvements. Martial arts benefits span a spectrum of physical, mental, and social attributes, all of which are learned and improved through martial arts training.

 

Physical benefits include the following:

  • Physical fitness 

  • Personal security

 

Mental benefits include the following:

  • Learning abilities 

  • Goal setting 

  • Discipline

 

Social benefits include the following:

  • Camaraderie 

  • Self-esteem 

  • Respect 

  • Calming

 
LETC

 

 

The Long Eaton Tetsudo Club is a non-profit making club and our aim as a club is to help people improve their lives through the teachings and principles of Tetsudo.

 

The Black Belt instructors volunteer their time freely and receive no financial gain from the running of the club.

 

As a result we are able to offer our sessions at a modest fee.

 
MEMBERSHIP COSTS
 
 

We recognise that as a martial art there are some costs involved to a student who trains in Tetsudo and as a non profit organisation the costs involved are designed to cover the overheads of the association/club (room hire/insurance/etc)

 

To give you an idea of costs involved within our association see the following:

 

Membership and Insurance for 12 months

  • Adult £25 + £5 for Belt/T-Shirt

  • Child £18 + £5 for Belt/T-Shirt (up to age 18)

There is no requirement to buy a Gi (suit) when joining as we feel there's no point in buying a costly item when you don't know if your going to keep training or not! We feel that after a period of time usually around Yellow Belt, then it's a good time to purchase one!

 

Gi suit prices start from £35 (based on size)

 

No other equipment or costs are required (pads, head & body protection, gum shield, etc)
